Centreville will not move forward on medical marijuana ordinance

Members of the Centreville Village Council agreed this week to not move forward with a medical-marijuana ordinance.

The council had worked on the ordinance since May 2017, but over the past few months, multiple residents attended meetings and urged the council to vote against the idea.

Village president Keith Shears and trustees Jeff Johnson, Steve Quake, Harlie Sherman and Dick Thompson voted to not proceed with the ordinance. Trustees Gary McClain and Mike Sherman voted to continue the process.

The latest draft of the ordinance would have allowed growers, processors, secure transporters and safety compliance facilities in the municipality’s industrial district.

Provisioning centers were not included in the ordinance.
